Clare Hammond, piano

Recently selected as BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Rising Star’, pianist Clare Hammond returns to Kings Place with an imaginative and enterprising programme, featuring two new works for piano and film. Hände, by Ken Hesketh, and The Nose, by Ed Hughes, both use silent film as the backdrop for works of breath-taking ingenuity and beauty. These have been programmed alongside Mazurkas by Szymanowski and Adès, Bach's imposing Toccata in D minor, and Medtner's passionate and turbulent Sonata Romantica.

Acclaimed for the ‘unfaltering bravura and conviction’ of her performances (Gramophone Magazine), Clare is rapidly developing a reputation for ‘brilliantly imaginative concert programmes’ (BBC Music Magazine). Her Panufnik Festival at Kings Place with the Brodsky Quartet in 2014 was acclaimed as the ‘culmination of this year’s centenary’ by the Telegraph while the Guardian noted the ‘great flair’ with which she premiered Ken Hesketh’s Horae at the Cheltenham Festival. Join her in this exhilarating exploration of contemporary music and film!
